Threat

lyrics

oh it took a few lies
and we all capsized
he bought his alibi’s
so i sit here and wait for the water to rise

not that i’m brave
more badly behaved
but he leaves his creases all over your face
and he loves the way he rattles your cage
which explains why you’re in such a fluster these days

since i caught fire
you’ve wished you had
kept me for yourself
but said i waited for you
i said come along
but you couldn’t be yourself

now i came with nothing
and i’ve got most of it left
cause i roll up my sleeves
and keep my heart in my chest
and i’m a danger to you now
that i’m no longer just a threat
and you’re a stranger to me now
just a stranger to me now

cause since i caught fire
you’ve wished you had
kept my for yourself
but said i waited for you
said come along
but you couldn’t be yourself

and there’s a hole in bucket
dear Liza a hole
so you can’t pour your heart out
cause this thing won’t hold
i’ve got to go
got to shift my bones
but give me a minute and i’ll walk you home

oh it took a few lies
and we all capsized
he bought his alibi’s
so i sit here and wait for the water to rise
cause i’m a danger to you now
that i’m no longer just a threat
and you’re a stranger to me now
just a stranger to me now
